Zoom: Using Zoom in Canvas

Overview

Zoom in Canvas allows faculty to schedule a Zoom meeting and share the link to the meeting with student in their course. For the Zoom integration to work properly, faculty and students should ensure that their default Canvas email is set to their ONID email. Users can still adjust their Canvas notifications to receive notifications at an alternative email address if they choose.
